Tibetan nun and activist, Ngawang Sangdrol
When we first began our project, Imagine the End of Atrocity, our goal was to collect the visions of activists, political and spiritual leaders, artists and writers, so that we could picture what the world would look like after the end of human rights abuses, genocide, and violence against women.
The Tibetan government, along with political refugees escaping persecution from the Chinese government, keep hope alive for a peaceful, independent Tibetan state, from their exile in Dharamshala, India. Who better than this diaspora, whose life is dedicated to maintaining hope for an end to violence and occupation, to share their visions for the end of atrocity?
In 2014, as part of our ongoing campaign, the 3 Generations video crew will travel to Dharamshala, where we will interview Tibetans who have unique visions for the world without human rights abuses. Through our Tibetan contacts, the 3 Generations team has secured rare interviews with high-ranking Tibetan rinpoches, as well as other lamas and spiritual leaders who have powerful visions for the future. The interviewees will also include Tibetans who have been tortured by the Chinese government, and want to share their stories of survival and their visions for the future. The visions and stories of governmental leaders will also be incorporated into this project. The interviews will be edited for 3 Generations’ website, as well as incorporated into our short film project Imagine the End of Atrocity.
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to speak with these Tibetans, whose visions and stories will be recorded for our benefit, as well as for generations to come.
